Fukushima Field Trip for ICU students

On March 11th 2011, Fukushima was devastated by a great earthquake and tsunami followed by a historical nuclear disaster.  After seemingly endless effort to clean up tsunami debris and contaminated soil, we still have not found a way to rebuild our homeland. Our real-fukushima team will guide you around Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station and tell you about:

  • the damage by earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident
  • what are radiation and its damage to the area
  • efforts to clean up radioactive contamination
  • what is nuclear power generation and its meaning to our world
  • difficulties to deal with nuclear emergency
  • renewable energy in Fukushima 
  • people’s efforts to revitalize Fukushima

The ICU Fukkushima Field Trip will be curried out from the 25th until the 27th of November 2022. We hope this site provides participants with basic information on Fukushima prior to the trip.

  1. Hello, I am interested in this field trip. I wanted to know:
    1.- Is it going to be in English? Can I join if I have no Japanese knowledge?
    2.- I just realized that the information session already passed. Is there another session that I can join? Or, who can I get in touch with to have more information?
    Thank you very much!

  2. Hi Maria,
